IPad 2018 Purchase Guide: Which iPad is best for me?

Buying an Apple device is a process that can take several days to clear up. There are many questions that we ask the buyers: will it be worth the price ?, Is it going to be supported for a long time ?, Will it be slow in the middle of the year? So many questions that we end up buying the first thing they offer us with an apple in the back.

For this, today we bring you a shopping guide for this 2018 in which we will show you the pros and cons of each iPad device and take you the one that best suits you. Keep reading!

iPad Pro 10.5 

The iPad Pro 10.5 inches is the latest model of Apple that Apple has released to the market. It is among the most powerful and has a bright and colorful screen that will delight lovers of drawing and design, or also those who want to enjoy multimedia content.

This device has the latest chip available for iPad, the Apple A10X Fusion, and has 4 GB of RAM that will allow you to navigate in it with incredible fluency. If we add that it is compatible with the Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil, this is an excellent option for those who do not want to leave a kidney but looking for excellent performance and durability.


    The latest and most powerful iPad available in the market.
    A large screen in a more "reduced" body than its predecessors.
    Compatibility with the Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil.
    Stereo sound thanks to its four speakers.


    A bit expensive .
    Accessories with a high price -Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard-.

iPad Pro 9.7

This iPad Pro with 9.7 inches screen was the one that started with the productivity revolution in iOS . With this device Apple wanted to get to a more professional experience with its operating system, which it achieved halfway. However, now with iOS 11 using an iPad Pro is an almost blessed experience.

The iPad Pro of 9.7 has the Apple A9X chip and 2GB of RAM. They may not be surprising numbers, but they are enough to run iOS 11 with complete ease and speed . Its base storage is 32GB, and is also compatible with Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard for a much more professional experience.


    Stereo sound thanks to its four speakers.
    Compatibility with the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard.
    The best iPad value for money . In addition, it can be found much cheaper if you buy it restored.
    Beautiful screen - although not the best on the market.


    Screen smaller than the new iPad Pro.
    Accessories with high prices.

iPad Air 2

The iPad Air 2 came out some time ago , however, the device has managed to move iOS 11 very smoothly most of the time. If you are worried that Apple will stop supporting you in the short term , we can only tell you that the iPad mini 4 is still being updated despite having a hardware inferior to the iPad Air 2.

This device has the A8X chip and 2GB of RAM, features that despite not being close to the latest iPads in the market, can offer a good experience in your day to day , and more taking into account that iPads are not devices that we use at every moment. It was released with an initial storage of 16GB, but Apple updated it up to 32GB. You can get it for a low price on sites like Amazon or eBay, though, most are second-hand or restored.


    Lighter and thinner than the new 9.7-inch iPad - not to be confused with the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
    You can find models with LTE and large storage space at a fairly low price .


    Hardware a little old .
    It does not have stereo speakers.

iPad mini 4

IPad mini 4 may be the oldest device on this list , but that does not mean it is bad. This device is perfect for small hands who want to use their iPad in a very comfortable way. However, there are some things you should consider if you decide to buy this terminal.

The iPad mini 4 was released with the A8 processor - that is, the same as the iPhone 6-, and 2GB of RAM. Therefore, your experience in iOS 11 is not going to be the most fluid of all, and probably iOS 12 is the latest version that you can install on your device. But the old age of this iPad has not prevented Apple from continuing to sell it officially in his store.


    Really small and light .
    You can find it very cheap - but not in the Apple Store.


    Pretty old hardware.
    Apple ** only lets you buy the most expensive version ** of 128GB .

iPad Pro 12.9

The beast, the most powerful iPad Apple has released to date; that's the description of this 12.9-inch iPad Pro. If you want to enjoy the best iOS experience , this is the perfect device for you. However, if you do not like large screens, forget about this iPad, since the terminal is almost the size of a laptop. In addition, its price is incredibly high .

The iPad Pro 12.9 has the Apple A10X Fusion eight-core chip, with 4 GB of RAM, which makes it a beast . However, this device is for those who take the experience on iOS quite seriously, or want to use it for something more professional like drawing or design.


    The most powerful iPad in the world.
    Four speakers that offer stereo sound.
    Compatible with Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil.
    An amazing screen.


    It's just a very big iPad . We can not use macOS apps despite their hardware.
    As big as a laptop.
    Pretty expensive.
    The Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard are sold separately .


Many iPad models can be used today, and most will give you a pretty good performance , or at least over the one offered by the competition.

1- If you want to buy something good, beautiful and "cheap", we recommend the iPad Pro 9.7 that still has a long journey ahead.

2 - If you want to be in the last but do not want to leave your inheritance in the process, the iPad Pro 10.2 may be recommended for you.

3- If you do not mind having a somewhat old device but with good response, the iPad Air 2 could be the best option.

4- The iPad mini 4 could be perfect for children at home or for a student who only wants to read PDFs and do some research from time to time.

5- If you take iOS seriously and want to design and draw like a professional, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is ideal for you, but remember that these accessories are sold separately.
